Pat Caruso Burgess: My mother is an amazing woman who always has a kind word for everyone. She is 86 years old and I still get phone calls from her asking “Would you like to go shopping?” lol….and of course we must stop for our hot fudge cream puff after She is still working part time and loves it! She is such an inspiration to me and our entire family–I’m glad she’s my mom!
Andrea Eggert Senska: As a new mom myself to 5 month old twins, I’ve gained a greater appreciation for my own Mother and everything she has done for me and my family. My childhood was filled with fun and laughter and I also learned many valuable lessons thanks to my Mother. I am thankful my Mom is still here with me and can create new memories with my children that they will cherish forever. I love you Mom!
Ali Merante: Mom and I go way back! 24 years to be exact lol. Mom has to be the most hard working mama I have ever met. She worked 34 years with my Dad to send my brother and I to Catholic school. Even though she is retired she is still busier than ever. She volunteers her time all week long. Mom babysits a beautiful baby girl 2-4 times a week along with teaching youth group on Mondays and feeding the needy on Thursdays at a church pantry. She is so giving and always looking for more places to share her time. Mom has given our family and friends more than we could ever hope for. In her “spare” time you can catch her making treats in our kitchen for everyone to enjoy! I love spending time with her! We love our adventures to NYC to visit my brother. She can out walk any of us lol. I look forward to all of our adventures to come. I’m so proud to be her daughter and to call her my mom, mom, mom, mommy, mommy, mamaa, mamaa! Love you Mama xoxo Ali girl your girly girl
Daniel Budsy: My aunt is so sweet because she’s like a mom to me! My own mom passed away when I was just a kid. So her younger sister stepped in to fill the void, even though she lived across the country. She’d fill our deep freezer with awesome casseroles, then she’d take us on a once a year shopping trip for clothes and toys. And til this day, she still calls me every week and tells me stories about my mom and their childhood together, so I feel like she’s still alive today.
Grand Prize Winner – Lisa Gundrum: My mom was sweet because she had 6 kids but she tried to spend special time with each one. My special time with her was taking a walk to the nearby mom and pop grocery store. She would buy me an ice cream bar and we would cross the street and eat our treats on the grass under an apple tree watching the cars go by. I was so happy and excited that I had her all to myself for even an hour or so. My mom just passed away 3 months ago. My first mother’s day without her but these memories are what I treasure. When I go home to visit, I still look at the tree when I pass it and think about those summer days eating ice cream with her under that tree.
Nichol Perez: @magnoliabakery My mom is sweet b/c she gives her grandkids my kids the same love she gave us & sweets to go with it. We all bake 2gether
@olyaolina (Instagram): My mom is so sweet because when I don’t feel good she cook my favorites chocolate pie and brings it to my bed in the morning without waking me up…because she knows the best thing to wake up from is the smell of mom’s pie
Hope Painter: My mom was the best mom ever! everyone loved her so even when i was away my friends would call her just to see how she was and for advice! my favorite mom moments were when she would go shopping with me and our talks where she was not only my mom but my bestfriend! since she passed away its so hard without her but alot of times when i go into your story by broadway the way it smells in the bakery reminds me of how our kitchen smelled when i was growing up and my mom loved to bake! thats probably why i am so obsessed with the store and the amazing cupcakes! thank you for doing this and giving me a minute to remember my mom who i miss all the time! blessings xo
@preacherwifedawn (Instagram): She gives of herself to everyone around never asking for anything in return
@hunnbunchofoats (Instagram): My mom is the sweetest because she is a hardworking and loving mom. She is not perfect but she gives her best to care and provide for me. A bonus sweet point goes to her because even though it was out of the way and traffic builds in the tunnel around rush hour, on the way home from work she out of her way to just get my birthday wish which was your amazing banana pudding and she grabbed me some cheesecake too!
Alvin Guzmán: My mom is not just my mom! She is mom of everyone who need her. Cant be more sweet… Lol
